to this point? how did the obama administration decide to treat a foreign terrorist who had tried to murder hundreds of people as if he were a common criminal? on christmas day, the skies above detroit became a battleground in the war on terrorism. that day, the bomb being carried by abdul mutallab failed to detonate, thanks to the courageous action of the passengers and crew. nearly 300 lives were saved on the plane, and more lives were scared on the ground. -- worst bear on the ground. the government security system failed long before abdul mutallab boarded his flight to the united states. it failed when his visa was not revoked, even though his father had warned our embassy in nigeria about his son's ties to islamic extremists. it failed when the intelligence community was unable to connect the dots that would have placed abdul mutallab on the terrorist watch list. it failed when this terrorist stepped onto the plane in amsterdam with the same explosives used by the shoe bomber, richard reid, or than eight years ago. but today i want to discuss another failure, a failure that occu

international community can do. what role can the obama administration in particular play in that part of the world? >> i actually have addressed this issue in a hearing, addressed the u.s. congress earlier this year. and this is when i really emphasized the need to help bosnia with its constitutional reforms. that attempt was made by the obama administration a couple weeks ago. however, at this point, it is considered by many people to have classmated and to have failed. i'm afraid with the election coming up in bosnia, the best we can hope for is for another attempt of this kind, including especially the obama administration, together with the e.u. happening in 2011. probably not before. >> what do you think the sort of specific difficulties in trying to get constitutional reform? >> well, simply to get an agreement between the political leaders. and i think this is one of the benefits of this, even though it may have been considered a failed process. it is a benefit. and a lesson learned for the international community at how difficult it is going to be to make any meaningful reform. >> al

administration we used the federal courts and military commissions. under the obama administration we are using federal courts and military commissions. they are using the mckinley i will terri commissions for many -- they are using the military commissions for many people detained but they decided to use the federal courts for certain of the 9/11 perpetrators. >> chris: would you support $200 million for city in order to hold the trials. >> i don't think that we should make the very important judgment of whether it as military commission or a federal court based on dollars and cents. those are much more important considerations than that. we should clearly find the area where you don't have to spend as much for federal court versus another, you know, one in new york city versus some where else. i do believe if you look at the bush administration record they tried, we all know it is a matter of record, other of the 9/11 perpetrators, the 20th hijacker, the shoe bomber, these were all people tried in federal courts and all the obama administration has said is we will pick the venue which m

happening here is the obama administration is now going back to that old pre-9-11 concept. >> you would think our successors would be going to the intelligence community saying, how did you do it? what were the keys to preventing another attack? instead of, they've chosen a different path entirely. the terrorists see what they're hoping for. our unity gone, our resolve shaken, our leaders distracted. in short, they see weakness and opportunity. you believe the president of the united states has made americans less safe? >> i do. now he's making some choices that in my mind, will, in fact, raise the risk to the american people of another attack. >> as for governor palin. here is her latest criticism. president obama must back off his plan to close down guantanamo bay, recognize that the real nature of the terrorist threat requires a commander in chief. not a constitutional law professor, unquote. he's evennic president obama finds himself in the same position president bush was in. you'll remember that left wing criticism of iraq severely hampered mr. bush in fighting that war. today pre
